Rex Murphy won’t answer questions about taking Oil Sands money , but his editor, The National Post’s Jon Kay, will.

Has Rex Murphy been paid by Oil Sands companies? How much? How often? If he has done nothing wrong and has nothing to hide, why won’t he disclose this? Should The National Post run a disclosure with his columns? Might these payments influence his writing? Would it change the way readers think about him or his opinions? Is The National Post’s credibility at stake? Is The National Post itself editorially partnered with the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP)?
